    First Braten cook

    Fired up the new rig yesterday for a tri-tip and a porterhouse. Started with Oakridge Santa Maria rub (seemed natural).

    Then some Royal Oak lump charcoal flanked by a couple of Kingsford hickory splits from Home Depot.

    Rearranged the logs after a while (no idea where this was a good move).

    Brought the grate down and got a decent sear at the end.

    I didn't get any pics cutting into it as everyone was wolfing it down...but they would have showed closer to medium than the MR I was shooting for. Practice will make perfect I'm sure.

    Found myself adjusting the grate height constantly which I'm sure was unnecessary.. Meater mostly said ambient temp was low 200s. Right after I moved the logs it got hot even up high and I moved meat to indirect for a bit.

    Today am trying the offset to smoke some small hunks of pork but...so much adventure to pursue!

              Man, adjusting the grate height is unnecessary but spinning the wheel sure is fun.

                Some times you just have to move the coals a lil bit for a more consistent heat

                    Looks very good. I was really considering that grill but could not find many videos working with it even though it has been around for a while. Keep us informed (with pics) on how you learn to cook with that grill....thx.

                    Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                    The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                    Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


                    The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                    The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


                    Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                    Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                    We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                    Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


                    This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
